I have a couple of suggestions for "glance" (I'm the current Spanish 

msgid ""
" - the server host name (that server must allow TCP connections from this
"   machine);\n"
" - a username and password to access the database.\n"
" - A database type that you want to use."
 ^  ^

1/ There's a leading whitespace before the dash, is that okay?

2/ Uppercase/lowercase usage should be consistent (keep the first 
character, all in uppercase or lowercase but not mixed).

msgid ""
"Enter the IP address of your keystone server, so that glance-api can 
contact "
"Keystone to do the Glance service and endpoint creation."

By "do the Glance service" what do you exactly mean here? This one sounds 
a bit fuzzy from a translator's POV, I mean, given that "to do" verb is 
an auxiliary one it can be translated to almost anything, it would be 
great if the action could be tuned a bit more (e.g., "start", 
"initialize", "setup", "perform", "realize"... and so on).

Interesting thread.

I wonder what motivated the change (project → tenant) and why the author 
chose this specific term which in English only has a specific meaning 
with not many parallelisms with the old one ("project").
